On Thursday, October 17, it rained a lot in Vermont. But when the clouds later lifted, they revealed bright white high peaks!

The highest spots in the state had snow on them and it was lovely. On Saturday we found 4 - 5 inches of snow at 3700 feet on Mt. Mansfield, at the top of the gondola. 

Here are a few photos from Saturday afternoon on Mansfield. Plus, a shot of a white-glazed Mt. Mansfield from a sailboat on Lake Champlain on Sunday. 

This gets us very excited for ski season. How 'bout you???
